One of my favorite hikes I've done in Colorado. I went in July and there were lots of windflowers. This hike has woods to walk through at the beginning, water falls and flowers, and then two beautiful lakes and amazing views at the top.

Went backpacking to the unnamed lakes past Upper Mohawk Lake. I tried driving down the rocky road but ended up having to stop 25% of the way in and hiked the rest of the way. Beautiful hike with lots to see, but it is very crowded. If you plan on camping, you will probably want to continue past Upper Mohawk, as there are not alot of spots

Not sure the 6.8 out and back is correct. Spruce Creek to Mowhawk Lake trails is 3.4, then 1.5 to upper lake. Awesome hike though. Using the switchbacks may have been easier than going up the waterfall using the cable, but live and learn.

We liked this hike a lot. There were a lot of people but it was Labor Day weekend so it was to be expected. It has some challenging areas, particularly if you go straight up some of the rocky areas. Beautiful lakes and falls. When it says go to the end of the road for the trailhead, this is much further than you may at first think. We parked probably two miles down the road from the trailhead where we saw a lot of other cars parked.
